Description

The Storm 400’s PowerTap Technology enables you to quickly and easily access maximum brightness with the touch of a finger. The Black Diamond Storm has the ability to switch from full power to any preselected dimmed position with the touch of a finger. For the technical consumer who wants the best, brightest, most waterproof, feature rich headlamp to use for fast paced, extreme environment activities. The powertap feature where you can can tap the side of the unit to go from full power to dimmed is pretty cool, however I’ve never really been in a situation where I’ve desperately needed to use it. And when off, you can lock/unlock the headlamp by simultaneously holding down the main and mode-selection buttons, to prevent it from turning on in your pack.

The casing is plastic and seems pretty hefty, but I haven't been too rough on it yet, so no comment on the durability quite yet. Its brightness memory means that you can turn the light off at a chosen brightness without it reverting back to the default when you switch it back on, and PowerTap function means you can alternate between full strength and dimmed light by tapping the side of the torch, though it is very easy to do this by accident!I'm not sold on the ability to dim the beam since I'm often unsure what level of output I've set it to and have to keep going back to check: for me, three discrete modes (low, mid and high) would be plenty, and clearer than an undifferentiated scale.

The Storm 450 also has three different coloured night vision modes and peripheral white lighting for close-range activities. The lock-out feature (hold the button for 6 seconds) is also invaluable: I'll never have to open my stuff sack to find an illuminated and half-drained headlamp again! This headlamp has three different styles of lights, most of which have multiple functions and an adjustable output. BD makes advertising claims that their battery life numbers are >4 times better than we measured, but as we explain in our article, Why Headlamp Claims are Deceptive.I must admit I have rated the storms for mountaineering for some time, the balance of ruggedness, weight, size, brightness and battery life being just right. A brightness memory even allows you to turn this lamp on and off, safe in the knowledge that it will remember your chosen brightness without reverting to full power.

The ANSI measured high mode runtime of 5 hours is excellent when compared to other high-performance lights that offer a huge throw of light.With a multitude of features such as PowerTap to adjust the light depending on what is required so as not to waist battery, red night vision bulb of a softer light, digital lock mode to prevent battery waist from accidently leaving it on, a high level of water resistance so no need to worry about the rain and a % battery meter so you don't run out of power by surprise.
